We're sorry, but certain colors/sizes are sold out and are no longer available.

As riders and online shoppers, we know it can be tough to buy a new bridle or pair of boots without trying them on. That's why we moved the fitting room to your living room (or barn)! From breeches to blankets, if you or your horse can try it on, you can return it, free! Just use the pre-paid return label included in your order within 60 days from the purchase date. And of course, please make sure the item is in like-new condition with original packaging (we said 'fitting room', not 'war room'!).

Why We Love This

The IRH XR9 Helmet is a high performance helmet that looks great in the schooling or show ring!  This extremely lightweight and comfortable helmet is covered in Amara suede that is both soft to the touch and water-resistant so you can be sure you look your best no matter the weather.

    IRH XR9 Helmet is rated 4.55 out of 5 by 40.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from AMAZING! I bought this helmet because I had a few falls in my past "Uvex" helmet. I love this helmet so much more! It has great ventilation and very classy. You can school and show with same great look with a Charles Owen! From someone who has a very round head, this helmet is perfect for me. <3

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful, comfy I originally ordered the charles owen JR8, but I chose the wrong size. Upon its return, I found out my size was not in stock but the customer service representative recommended I try this one. This helmet does seem to run one size too large, and it actually took me three more tries before I found the right fit! I recommend going only one size up from your measurement, no more.My new helmet fits to perfection. Comfortable, impressively light weight, and looks fantastic. The chin strap is soft. The helmet comes with optional soft foam inserts for a perfect fit.Customer service at Smartpak is the absolute best, and they went above and beyond in getting me the right helmet as well as accommodating my shipping needs since I live in Hawaii. They even shipped 1 day air to get it to me in time for my first dressage show since my return to riding.I couldn't be more pleased with the helmet and with Smarpak.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very comfortable I really like this helmet, this is my second one. Its low profile for the price range. It is comfortable, i dont get headaches from wearing it, even for hours.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great helmet! I bought this helmet last month because I outgrew my old one, and I love I just as much (same brand and model)! Very comfortable and great quality. It's not cheap but it's worth it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super Nice Hlemet I bought this helmet to replace the schooling helmet after a fall. I did not expect it to be this nice. The fit is fabulous and the helmet itself looks great! This is a great helmet. If you do have a fall please replace your helmet.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Saved my head! I've had this helmet for a little under a year and love it - it's durable, fits great, and is very attractive. But the most important thing is I'm pretty sure it saved my life last weekend when I took a fall cross county and fell directly on my head. I still had a concussion and some chipped teeth, but I was able to get up and walk away. For that, it is priceless. I will definitely buy a new one to replace it.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from So comfortable! I've only had this helmet for a few weeks and I've been super careful with it so I can't speak to the durability. But It's a very comfortable helmet that looks similar to the much more expensive CO's. I wish it didn't have the silver metal IRH logo on the front, maybe if it were black or less obvious, but otherwise, I'm pleased with it.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Helmet I have had this helmet for two years and recently ordered a replacement. This helmet held up beautifully for schooling and showing and I was so sad when I noticed the back of the helmet made a cracking noise when I pressed on it. I would have been happy to keep the new XR9 I ordered but the sizing has changed and the helmet no longer fits me. The helmet is lightweight and looks great. I think it's a better helmet than the Charles Owen helmets in this price range - I ordered the JR8 as well and had a really hard time getting my hair to look nice from the back in the JR8 as the harness doesn't provide as much covereage as the XR9.

    Ever since I was the girl with 1,000 breyer horses and the raggity braid in her hair, I was always obsessed. In second grade I moved into a town with a barn right down the street, which is when I started taking lessons...
